    Hi Kaye,

    Yes, rest assured, trains from the Zurich Airport to Lucerne do run over the holidays.

    In continental Europe, it is typically the case that rail service is not limited on December 24th, December 25th, or January 1st. In fact, the United Kingdom is the only country in Europe that stops rail service on December 25th.

    Generally, trains from the Zurich Airport to Lucerne can only be booked within 60 days of an intended departure; However, December is the time of year when the annual 'Winter Schedule Changes' occur with some of the rail networks and train operators in Europe. As a result of the 'Winter Schedule Changes', many trains operating after December 11th have not yet been posted in the international booking system, including the trains from Zurich Airport to Lucerne.

    We expect schedules for departures after December 11th to be released some time by early-mid November at the latest. For right now, you can just use a date some time between now and December 11th in order to get an idea of the schedules and costs in the meantime.
